's right to an equal education, or every brother who challenges the law that keeps his sister from owning property, or opening a business, or every husband, who not only promises that the cycle of domestic violence can stop with him, but who proves it. i see that courage. i see that hope in every woman on this stage, and you will learn that in a moment. in a testimony of the four honorees who cannot be here today because of the repression and the intimidation that still festers around the world. i see how much work we still have to do and so do you. one of the awardees is in hiding, another is in prison. 5 we present a fourth award for a brave woman whose life was brazenly stolen by brutal violence. their cause is our cause. women's issues, as we know, are more than just women's issues. they are family issues. they are economic issues. they are security issues. they are justice issues. they matter to all of us men, as well as women, boys as well as girls, those who live in free countries, as well as those who don't. that is why, including with the work of secretary clinton, and ambassador
government to carrying out activities in violation of international law and the domestic laws of many other countries. for north korea these criminal activities are viewed as necessary to maintain the power of the regime with no regard for the fact that they are corrosive to international law and order. so the question is, what steps can we take to combat north korea's illicit activities, and can our efforts to prevent these activities be used to pressure north korea to abandon its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs? now, i just heard on the news this morning that the agreement has been made ostensibly with china to punish north korea for its missile-launching nuclear tests. i hope that china will not do what it's done in the past and agree to sanctions and then just erode those sanctions so the sanctions really never took hold. i hope that china will finally understand that the north korean regime is a threat to stability in that region of the world and in many regions of the world, because as chairman royce pointed out, korea, north korea is a rogue state helping countries lik
of their draft laws passed, search engines would have to pay fees to publishers for using their reports. >> we want journalists and publishers to get paid enough for their work. the internet is really efficient, but the content that people search and save does not just right itself. >> the opposition says the draft law is too vague about what search engines would have to pay for. the draft law says search engines would not have to pay to show snippets of articles, but they would if they publish full articles. however, it does not say what a snippet is. the greens said opposition is also strong outside parliament. >> german journalists and the freelance journalist association are against your bill, and so are well-known constitutional law professors and basically every copyright expert in the country. >> many net experts in the government are also skeptical about the bill, but the government has the numbers in the bundestag, so the bill passed. it is however expected to meet resistance in the upper house. >> the second chamber of germany's parliament is where we are going next because things ha

blowers that there were gaps in federal laws concerning straw purchasers which should be addressed, and this is our opportunity to do it. mr. chairman, you have worked with me on your bill making many changes at my request. they have made the bill better and reduced the negative side effects of previous versions. i trust you think so as well because you have included the changes in the new bill. the new bill in your substitute amendment also included a revised bill by senators gillibrand and kirk on the subject of gun trafficking. those revisions also reflect changes that i asked senator gillibrand to make, and i think it would be worthwhile to outline all the changes that have been made to the bill since they were first introduced. i think they demonstrate good faith of the chairman and senator gillibrand. for instance, senator gillibrand's bill originally would have made it a federal crime to transfer two or more guns if that person knew that the result would be a violation of state or local law. that would have given states and localities a one-way incentive to address new gun c

of the children and education. we've made sure that our law enforcement is taken care of, but we've also made those difficult choices early on that washington could really learn from in budgeting. i congratulate congressman messer for bringing this particular bill. it's a good government bill. i know the other side of the aisle is talking about the sequester, and i find it ironic that "the washington times" today has a headline that says, 400 more jobs were created in spite of the sequester. so i don't believe that the sky is falling here. this legislation requires the president to do some simple math and include with his budget, should he choose to submit one, an estimate of the cost of the deficit per taxpayer. taxpayers just simply deserve to know how much they owe for washington's out-of-control spending. after all, every dime that the federal government borrows is saddled on this generation and the next generation and generations to follow. right now the cost of washington's $16 trillion of national debt totals more than $147,000 per taxpayer. in fact, approximately every minute, mr. spe
practiced law, i didn't measure every client who came through the door to say, now, do i agree with every position my client is taking? of course not. the belief is that in our system of justice, both sides deserve a voice in the courtroom, and both sides, doing their best, give justice an opportunity. well, that's what caitlin halligan did as the solicitor general for the state of new york. now, listen to this. one of the arguments being made against her was she argued a position as solicitor general that favored using article 3 courts for the prosecution of terrorists. article 3 courts are the ordinary criminal courts of the land under our constitution. she argued that position. many republicans take an opposite position that anyone accused of terrorism should be tried in a military tribunal, not an ordinary criminal court. they've held that position, they argue that position, they get red in the face saying that's the only way to take care of terrorists. the relate city that since 9/11, president bush, as well as president obama, have had a choice between prosecuting terrorists in arti
that would touch every american, cuts to early childhood education, teachers aides would be cut, law enforcement and the military, and cuts to senior programs. there are cuts to a program that brings food to senior citizens in their homes. there is a waiting list of about 100 seniors who want to get these meals. these are the cuts that would, at some point, they could potentially affect a lot of people. >> given the impact, how are ordinary people reacting to the situation? >> they are upset and angry and frustrated. they have been hearing about the budget crisis for several weeks, and a lot of people did not think that this would actually happen. the economy has not been good in the u.s. and in this area people were hoping that the economy would improve, and they were hoping that these cuts would not go through and trickle down to the community and affect people. there is a lot of anger in the white house and in congress. >> are people hopeful but they will sort out some compromise? many people did not believe the u.s. would get to this point, did they? ablee didn't and they were to

it in the house, you could not take the law seriously. nobody had any interest in voting against it. it was politically incorrect to vote against it was the implication, and therefore the court should not defer to it as it might normally defer to the law. >> what has changed since 2006 with this lot? >> the covered states need to be covered. because of voting rights violations. the congress amassed evidence of this, and that is why they extended section 5. >> special the county attorney, but jealous -- the shelby county , said we butch ellis have made tremendous strides. >> shelby county is the last place you want to make this case because the evidence of verifies keeping that county covered. chief justice roberts thinks things have changed. things have not changed that much. go back to the last convention. the evidence of attempted voter suppression is pervasive in this country. even more states probably should be covered than are already covered. >> that is sort of the point of shelby county. it says, you have not re- evaluated if it is already covered. we have not looked at this
of the senate law enforcement caucus today to hear testimony from kentucky and delaware about the justice reinvestment initiative. we flew some people in. unfortunately the inclim ate weather canceled it. it's a place where bipartisan bills at the state level have led with federal partnership to the critical catalytic investments in improving criminal justice systems. the bulletproof partnership is something -- i had a police officer from dover, delaware, a couple months ago, was shot twice close range in the chest and survived. the county where i used to serve, their lives were saved. we should be re-authorizing this program. i look forward working with you on that. last question if i could, in the same vein. the victims of child abuse act and the child advocacy centers that it funds, i think are an enormous resource for law enforcement and prevent the revictimization by children who were traumatized to be interviewed once. it has all the relevant folks there and present. the one i visited, a children's hospital in new cassel county, the resource for our community and our law enforcement
them under the law of war, we're going to exploit intelligence but we're going to do it within the laws that we've signed up to like the geneva convention, the convention against torture. so to my friends on this side of the aisle -- mr. durbin: would the senator yield for a question? mr. graham: absolutely. mr. durbin: to my colleagues on the other side of the aisle it was 12 hours ago i was standing here, a lonely voice among others who were discussing this issue bringing up the points that you raise. the first is the drone is a weapon. there are many weapons that can deliver lethal force. we should view this as an issue of lethal force, not an issue of drones per se, although it may raise some particular questions and application. it is largely a question of lethal force. the second question has been raised by the senator from -- both senators. what if the fourth airplane had not been brought down by the passengers? what if that plane were headed for this capitol building and all other planes had been landed across america under orders of our government and we knew this plane was the
, but did a great job in school himself. got into columbia, later, harvard law. didn't become a money grubber. he decided to work helping people in his own community. a peaceful kind of guy. is he some bounder who doesn't take responsibiliiblility for h manhood? i say just the opposite. so what is it that the haters fear about this guy? what do they hate? that he's black? is that it? he didn't push gun issues until newtown. is it the immigration issue? he's the same as the gang of 8 right there in the middle. what is it they hate in this guy? they should be applauding him as a role model. a hundred years from now, white, black and brown, this is just the guy you'd want standing out there as our role model. that's "hardball." "politics nation" with al sharpton starts rielt now. >> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. last night, the largest active volcano in europe erupted. mt mt. mt.edna spewed la va and hot ash for a thousand feet in the sky. the blast was so powerful, it was visible in space. something else is blowing up. the gop's relentless disput with president obama.
to residency. for him, jeb bush argues this isn't about the particular but to get it signed into law. >> so do you think there's a significant difference between marco rubio who clearly is on board for a path way to citizenship? >> there is a difference in terms of the proposal that jeb bush makes but i think ultimately if jeb bush were in the senate or were the president, i don't think it would matter. i think he's showing that he's flexible. some might call it a flip-flop and as far as jeb bush is concerned, we need to do something, something needs to be accomplished. he doesn't seem to be bothered by the criticism. his position is, look, the system we have right now does not work. whatever we come forward and propose as a solution is better than the unworkable reality of today. >> we'll have more during the 6:00 p.m. hour including the possibility, he's leaving it open, that he may run for presidency in 2016. is there a third bush potentially in the run for president? we'll talk about that. thank you, jake. >> thank you, wolf. >>> two states have legalized drug use. washington needs to crac

that they announced a few hours ago. we want to appeal to respect the rule of law and the constitution of which they are so proud. let the supreme court decide whether they will do this with a loved one. >> it has not gone down well in his hometown. they spoke out. batons were deployed in the western port city after protesters sthrew rocks and burned tires. anger in the odinga camp. >> as kenyatta stood at the center, thousands of supporters gathered to hear the final word. >> [indiscernible] >> they waited for him to arrive. they taunted the former chief prosecutor of the criminal courts. look at this they shouted. to them this was not just a vote for the man they believed the country needs. it was a referendum of the icc charges laid against him. >> most of the western countries if they have any opinion, they have to change it. it has been decided today. what kenyans see is what they have to respect. >> the mood was a lot more somber here. the expected to win the election in the first round appeared to have lost comprehensively amid all of the allegations of vote ringing brings disturbing ech
will be supportive. it is the deal that i made. our additional cut on top of that, by law, until congress takes the sequester a way, we would have to abide by those additional cuts. there is no reason why we should nhave another crisis like shutting the government down. >> even at the lower levels, even if you -- >> i never want to make myself 100% clear with you guys, but i think it is fair to say that i made the deals for a certain budget, there is no reason why that deal needs to be reopened. it is a deal that the speaker made as well and all of the leadership may. a bill that arrives on my desk reflects that commitment that we previously made. i will sign it because i need to make sure that we keep doing what we need to for the american people. >> can you have them down here and refused to let them leave the room? [laughter] >> jessica, i am not a dictator. i am the president. ultimately, if mitch mcconnell or john boehner say they're going to go, i can't have secret service block the doorway. i understand. i know that this has been some of the conventional wisdom that has been floating aro
commissioner was severely injured and now he is in a stable condition. sectionementation of 144 of the law had been implemented. that means more than four people are now banned and the military in that one district alone are trying to classify the situation in there. but the situation there is very typical to cross the country. 10 kilometers outside of the capital, four dead here, one dead here. it we're slowly getting in more reports of individuals, women or children, coming through u.s. year. thisthere has been an over ove and turning it over on friday. the strike has been well observed. we have been driving around to see what is different with the schools mostly closed. >> that was our correspondent on the line there from dakkar on the situation in bangladesh, still very hostile. the military mobilized in malaysia after they found and killed five policemen. two gunmen also killed on sunday night and they're suspected of being linked to a group of armed intruders and that group has been holed up in the state for more 3 weeks now. they refused to surrender. 14 people were killed in a shootout
will be housed in the pentagon and, thus, providing the ability under law to be more transparent. >> go ahead, michael. >> that still doesn't answer the underlying question. that's all nice bureaucratic organization of the charts, but it still doesn't answer the underlying -- >> i call it the u.s. law. >> that too, but you're not a lawyer. again, the point is how does the government respond to the question of killing united states cities abroad through drones, how does the drone program in its implementation more broadly speaking apply to u.s. citizens, which as you've pointed out, alex, the question answered was a little bit nebulous. that's the legitimate point we need to get to. i get what you're saying about how the cia should handle this and the defense department handle that, but the role of the u.s. government in sponsoring a program in which the lives of a u.s. citizen is a question mark in its engagement of foreign policy or national security is a legitimate question. >> just one thing to be clear, this was not a policy that started in january of 2009, right? i know you know that. >>
the court's decision on marriage? a constitutional law expert at nyu. he's here with me this afternoon. good to see you, professor. >> good to see you, craig. >> proposition 8 has been battered around in california courts. what's behind the timing of the supreme court being asked to hear this case now? >> well, it's just gone up the system in the regular stately way that these cases go so that the trial in this case is actual held in early 2010. there was a 9th circuit opinion and now there's an appeal to the supreme court and so we'll hear the the ultimate decision and oral arguments will be heard in the 26th and we'll hear the ultimate decision in the court in june. how unusual is it for an administration to be involved in a supreme court case like this? >> not that unusual. the brief itself talks about prior cases in which it's gotten involved in precisely this way. >> when that happens, does it lend any more credence to the argument? >> i think it definitely does. i think the government will now be allowed oral argument time in the court so we'll be able to address the justices about whe
. there's a legal framework when you read the law and you read, for example, what the attorney general has said among others, there's a very broad legal framework in which you can operate. but the policy framework is and should be much narrower. so i think that is the framework that people should have confidence and being exercised and know that these dispitions are made -- decisions are made very carefully. >> thank you. christina, next. drill down border enforcement. janet napolitano, there's a lot of publicity about the immigrant demainee. you were explaining to me there's a number call issue you face. >> there was a story we released 2,000 detainee because of sequester. that is really not accurate. >> it was not . >> it was not politico -- i won't say who it put it out there. and as in all things, immigration it develops its own mythology. here is the deal. we are constantly, as the secretaries. know, moving people in and out of detention. these are immigrants who illegal immigrants who for one reason or another are just better in detention than under some alternative. with sequester l
starts january. but there are look-back procedures in the law that are affecting the way the employers hire their staff today. there are a lot of effects of obamacare that we are starting to see and the house, i expect, will have extensive oversight hearings on the devastating impact of this law and the american people. >> [inaudible] >> we'll look at them when we get there. >> will that go into the budget? >> i don't know that. last one. >> have you worked out a schedule when it comes to conference? >> i'm not -- the president talked about coming up and having a conversation with our members. i'm not sure when that conversation will be. as you know, he is getting ready to empark on a trip to the middle east and that's one of the issues he'll want to cover. but i'm sure the issue of sequestration will come up as well. we are going to welcome the president to come up and talk to our members and i'm looking forward to it. >> wednesday morning? >> when we are ready to announce it, you'll know.

,000 people without power. the state of arkansas will now have the most restrictive abortion law in the country. republicans dominating the legislature overrode a gubernatorial veto today. the new law includes a near-ban on abortions after the 12th week of pregnancy. it's slated to take effect this summer, but a court challenge is certain. a small group of u.s. senators today filibustered the nomination of john brennan to be director of the c.i.a. they focused on whether the government would ever use drone aircraft to attack americans, inside the u.s. kentucky republican rand paul cited a letter from attorney general eric holder. it said drone strikes on u.s. soil might be considered in an extraordinary circumstance, such as 9/11. paul said he's alarmed. >> you can't take away someone's life and liberty without due process or an indictment. so it should trouble every american. i can't imagine that there wouldn't be an american in our country that would not be troubled that we're talking about killing non combatants in american with drone strikes. >> several other republicans join
saying, that there are no geographic limitations. they also, then, say that the laws of war apply. the laws of war basically mean that you don't get due process. and i can understand that in a battlefield. i'm not for reading miranda rights to people that are shooting at us. if you're an opposing soldier, you shoot at me, we kill you. there is no miranda rights. nears no jury, no trials, no due process. but they say america is the battlefield. that's a huge mistake. and i think most americans would disagree with them if they knew the implications. >> john brennan whose nomination to lead the cia was temporarily blocked by rand's filibuster was confirmed yesterday by a senate vote of 63-34. in fact, both mccain and graham voted to support brennan with graham calling it, quote, a referendum on the drone program, adding that before the filibuster, he had planned on voting no. that infuriated supporters of rand paul who launched an online movement with the hash tag primarygraham. they hammered him for dining in a d.c. restaurant while at the same time paul was questioning the administ

. the only ones that would have guns would be the government and of course criminals who ignore gun laws. i call it the mexico model. guns are outlawed in mexico. the citizens cannot possess guns. there is no second amendment. so the government has guns and criminals have guns. some of those criminals have guns thanks in part to the united states government sending 2,000 assault weapons to them in fast and furious. but that's another story. u.s. cities are moving toward the mexico model. chicago and washington, d.c., have laws that make it very difficult for a citizen to exercise the second amendment. these cities make it difficult to even own a firearm, but all three places -- mexico, chicago, washington, d.c. -- all have a reputation of violent, unsafe places. why? because they are. in d.c., if d.c. was so safe, why are government guards everywhere in the city? even here in this capitol building there are armed guards on the roof, at the doors, at the back doors, at the doors over to the east and to the west. it's hypocritical of the gun control crowd in this chamber to say more guns for
distress. our foreign policy is inseparable from supporting international law. we must assist the genuine, moderate and democratic forces in syria who are in dire need of help and who feel abandoned by the international community. the longer this conflict goes on, the more human suffering, persecution of minorities, radicalization and sectarian conflict there will be. despite these three compelling arguments, there will still be those who say britain should have nothing to do with syria. but we cannot look the other way while human rights are flouted, and it would be height of irresponsibility to ignore potential threat to our own security. so i want to explain to the house today the next step in increasing our support to the syrian people, and i emphasize there may well have to be further steps. we have contributed nearly 140 million pounds in humanitarian aid so far. this is funding foot, clean drinking water, medical stabs, blankets and shelter for many tens of thousands of people. we're supporting the syrian national coalition's own efforts to deliver aid inside syria, and we will see
